Elizabeth Robinson (maiden name Hamilton)
« on: May 19, 2020, 01:33:01 PM »

My great grandfather Charles Robinson married Elizabeth May Hamilton in May 1918 (his second wife).  They may have lived in Ainsworth St and / or May St. in Belfast.   Elizabeth was born in Jan 1894 and died in Feb 1973.  They had 4 children all born in the 1920's who all subsequently emigrated to Canada.
Does anyone have any info they can share on Elizabeth ?
Any help greatly appreciated

     Elizabeth was living at 227 Mayo St when she married in 1918:
There are several trees on Ancestry which list this family. One records 4 children: Margaret b 1921, Sarah 15.2.1923 died 2007, Stephen 1925 & Elizabeth 1927.  Their birth certificates are not viewable on-line but you can get copies from GRONI in Belfast. Charles is recorded as dying 25.11.1948. There is a death on GRONI that matches that. You can view the original certificate on-line on the GRONI website, using the “search registrations” option:
You will need to open an account and buy some credits. It costs £2.50 (sterling) to a view a certificate.
I looked on the PRONI site to see if Charles left a will. He didn’t or at least not one that required probate. The Northern Whig of 26.11.1948 has a notice about his death and gives his address as 34 Ainsworth St.
